Staying Ahead of the Talent Curve Employers Most Sought After Skills

Most employers want college graduates that possess both technical and “soft-skills”.  Certain types/classes of job are likely to disappear as new technologies, including robotics and artificial intelligence come into broader use.

What can educators do to prepare and train people for this coming dislocation?
